Crawdads and Tadpoles and Lizards oh MY

So I generally pride myself on being an indoor type of girl. I don't so much enjoy hiking, or bugs, or getting dirty. Yes, I know, we went camping last weekend....but we slept inside, NOT in a tent...and I went potty in my mom's camper....but I digress.

Yesterday we took the kids to the park (an acceptable outdoor activity) and prior to leaving we cut through a little trail down to the creek (or crick as I like to call it). Down at the creek was a family who CLEARLY enjoyed the outdoors catching all sorts of river nastiness. My kids, not being used to creek critters were fascinated by all of this while I on the other hand was fascinated by the fact that one of their kids was sporting a rat tail....I have not seen one of those since about 1985.

This family had an entire aquarium full of THESE. I will wait until you are finished screaming

I asked the guy who's finger that nasty thing was stuck to what they were planning to do with all of those things and he told me they were going to eat them. And I almost threw up. Before the nasty critters met a boiling end my kids got to touch them...and by kids I mean Pierce. Mallory thought they were super gross, would get close to one and then squeal the the little girl she is and run away. That's my girl. She did touch the tadpole which impressed me. I was not sure what they planned to do with him and I truly did not want to know. They also had a tiny little salamander that Pierce held. He was actually kind of cute.

So here are a few pics from our accidental science lesson. After we left I hosed both of them down in antibacterial gel so they did not catch some unknown strand of critter flu.

On another note....did you Twilight lovers catch the New Moon trailer. Holy crap!! I have watched it about 100 times already. I have not watched the MTV Movie awards in YEARS but I actually stuck around for the entire thing (only to see Edward) and I totally LMAO at Borat putting him bum in Eminem's face. That. Was. Hysterical.

Oh gosh - remind me not to read your blog while eating lunch...again. LOL ew!

Wow, I'm not a fan of creepy crawly either.


Ewww, I don't like those things either. Cute pics, though!

I never watch the MTV award show, but I did because I wanted to see what everyone was talking about on Twitter, and I fell asleep with about 10 mins left. Eminem was *pissed*. Haha!

Mommy of M's

That first pic is BEYOND gross!


Obviously you are not from Louisiana LOL

Great shots! Love that one of Mallory against the blue sky!

I may have vomited in my mouth a little when you noted they were going to eat them. Ew.

I am a city girl except when it comes to four legged FURRY animals.


I am going to try to find the trailer online now because I missed it!!! :) Gaaaahh!!!


Ha ha, lots of fun creepy crawlers. Good for you and your kids, lol. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am going to have to check out New Moon tralier now! :)


You are so funny! You wouldn't make it a day being Gabe's mommy; the kid is constantly bringing me critters from the "crick" in our backyard :)

And as much as I love to hold them and look at them, I would never want to EAT them...yuck! I'm with you on that.

When I was 5 I used to play in a crick with all kinds of little creatures. I was what they call a Tom Boy!

kiddiescorner thanks for stopping by my blog and welcoming me to SITS!


too cute...thanks for visiting my blog today! I love the outdoors and dirt and mud...but I guess you can tell by my last post of my son getting his 4 wheeler stuck in the mud. And to be honest my husband ate crawdads just 2 weeks ago when we went out to eat....he will eat anything that comes out of water....crazy man!!!!


Oh that is great! I live in Alabama, have a bunch of broad head skinks in our yard, and a king snake someplace - needles to say we have NO BUGS. They are all eaten I assume. Those damn lizards are huge too.

One of my fellow bloggers is a huge Twilight fan. I think she has a second blog all about Twilight. Can't remember the name but if you come to our site, it is Miss Know It All, you can probably find the link off her site. You twilight people are wild! (That being said, I've read the books too and was at the first movie on opening day with Miss Know It All. I'm team Jacob). ;-)

I enjoy your blog by the way!

Ick! Looks like stuff Elijah would pick up!


Oh, boy, I don't know if I'm prepared for having a boy.... :)

Your pictures are beautiful!!


ewww! why do boys insist on touching these things, only recently did mine become aware of playing with bugs:)
of course i guess the ones in the house aren't the same as the ones outside of it because if there is one inside he screams bloody murder "bug, mommy bug!"
